I'm really happy the Toreros made it in, even though they're a longshot in that regional.

Ladies, I will open my home this Saturday for anyone who wishes to drop by. We will have neighbors over as well, and my son plans to be there. 9 a.m. until ?

And of course, this is a weekend when I have an unavoidable commitment to two activities (one of them being attending the Dodgers-Mets game)...so I guess I'll have to wait until the Supers, should you decide to host again. Sad

We will probably have a Supers round party, too, so no worries.

Just about ready to finish my brackets.

Of course I'll be following from afar, so don't be surprised if I pop in with comments and/or updates! Smile

Damn, where do I begin? My life has been non-stop crazy the last few days. I have so much to say!

Who is ready for next weekend? I am opening my house again, so hopefully no conflicts with other activities this time!

I will so be there! Very Happy

How are your brackets looking? I'll post the updated with Super Regional info later.

Before I head on over, here's an updated schedule for this weekend.

I'm kind of annoyed at the West Coast games having to compete against each other. Mad

Texas A&M is the first team to claim a spot in the CWS by eliminating Louisville. (I had Louisville advancing.) Congratulations to the Aggies.

First, as always, thanks to Cathy! Very Happy And thanks for your flexibility with so many TVs/monitors--I had forgotten the Padres were playing a doubleheader.

Next, I was completely disheartened by the evening games. UConn going up by so much so early, only to see it end a close 13-12 loss for Stanford, really puts an exclamation point on their arrival at the Sunken Diamond. Oregon State must bounce back tomorrow after losing to Auburn.

Some of those long drawn-out slugfests I could have done without, although it was exciting to see such a huge comeback even though it fell short.

I had a good time too despite it all and the Dodgers losing, too. Baseball is great with friends.

Thank you, ladies. We sure had wall to wall ball!

Now today - I am in shock! Are you kidding, Notre Dame eliminated Tennessee? That is beyond crazy. Congratulations to ND for making it to the College World Series. Stanford is leading now and has to win to force a game 3.

Not only that, but Stanford vs. UConn is still alive and tomorrow they play for all the marbles.

Stanford won it 10-5, and is going back to Omaha! Congratulations!

And the last team in is Auburn, who beat Oregon State, 4-3, game just ended. Stanford will have 3 SEC teams to deal with on that side of the bracket. I guess OSU should not feel too bad since Tennessee was already eliminated.

Okay, the field is set!

To review, the teams advancing are:

Notre Dame
Oklahoma
Auburn
Ole Miss
Arkansas
Texas
Texas A&M
Stanford

Go Cardinal!

Also, congratulations to UConn for playing a great series and establishing control from the start, although eventually Stanford was too much for them to overcome. The Huskies never stopped coming at them, though--they were a much tougher opponent than I had predicted.

You know I want to be there so badly, but can't be in two places at one time.
Sad

World Series action started yesterday, and the first day's results were as follows:

Notre Dame 7, Texas 3
Oklahoma 13, Texas A&M 8

Unfortunately the game you missed was a horrible beatdown. Well fortunately for you, I guess. But it's just embarrassing to lose 17-3 in your opening game.

It was not the same without you, Linda. But today? Stanford got eliminated without even a win in the CWS. Auburn won, 6-2.

Geez, that was beyond disappointing. Not a single win in Omaha.

Now I really don't care which of the remaining teams wins. Sad

Deflating as it is for the rest of us, one of the teams has secured a spot in the finals--that's Oklahoma.

I was starting to really think Notre Dame had a shot but then they've been eliminated. It's going to be Ole Miss and Oklahoma now for the title.
